Arachnophobia warning!

I'm putting this video below a fold, because even the still image would probably freak out arachnophobes.

I, on the other hand—being the sort of spider aficionado who has invited, just to get a closer look, anything from common house spiders to tarantulas crawl on her (the teensy, quick, scampering ones make me screech-giggle when they scurry across or near me, but tarantulas are super mellow)—think this video of a female wolf spider with babies on her back is amazing.
